The most common type of mass tort lawsuits are product liability actions. A product liability suit claims that a product was either defectively designed, manufactured, or marketed, and as a result caused injury or damages to the consumer. One well-know example of a mass tort claim is lawsuits against the asbestos industry claiming that asbestos companies failed to warn of the potential health hazards and harm from exposure to asbestos. Other common types of mass tort claims may be against the manufacturer of:
- Pharmaceutical drugs;
- Medical devices;
- Motor vehicles or other equipment; and
- Other consumer products.
